Residents, visitors and other beings extraordinaire! 1

“The sound of birds stops the noise in my mind.” – Carly Simon

I am a ramshackle person residing in this ramshackle house. And, as I am forced to live in a city, I have created – in my mind mostly – a small and crumbling forest scenario. It sustains me momentarily and stirs  my soul to live for yet, another day. I look forward to the  company of  this forest’s permanent residents; the visitors and other beings. They stop me from feeling lonely.

The photograph of the house is old and when everything was green. Now, the peak of summer and it is hot, dry and vinegary with scorched leaves and the passing away of many plants. Morning temperature in the shade, at 7:45 am is 30° C!

The pictures have been taken over a period of time and in no particular order. All are in and around the house at different times of the day. However, most revolve around the various ‘water spots’ created for the birds and squirrels.

To be continued……….
